On the crypt, which is very old Roman tomb (crypt) from the IV century, meaning that there was a previous ritual building, XI century, built this temple. The oldest frescoes are from the fourteenth century than it is a layer of XV and XVI century painted by St. Pimen Zografski. The church is called St Petka of Iconium, which is the patroness of samardzhiite (masters of saddles and harnesses), whose district was in the region during the Middle Ages and want to attend the temple and maintained.
